Landlords are to be prevented from evicting tenants in England without giving a reason, under proposals published in a government White Paper.

The Renters Reform Bill will also end blanket bans on benefit claimants or families with children - and landlords must consider requests to allow pets.

Housing charity Shelter called it a "game-changer".

But landlords associations said the government must ensure the changes would not worsen the housing crisis.

Of all the private renters leaving accommodation in 2019 and 2020, 8% had been asked to go by their landlord, the Department for Levelling up said.

I Call Bull: Surely if you own the house then you should be able to stipulate who or what you want in it to minimise wear and tear?

Calling bull on this bill but call TRUE if you think this is a good thing

If it helps people feel more secure in the homes that they are renting this is a good thing

This is a good thing BUT it should be MUCH easier/cheaper to evict problematic tenants once proven.

Calling true as it gives the tenants a bit more protection, although there's arguments to be made for both sides in this story granted.

There are always going to be both landlords and tenants that buck the system but giving more control to the tenants seems a good way to protect them, as long as landlord rights are also strengthened to help them get rid of troublesome tenants
